Charles W. Sorensen. 

"The manufacturing industry is akey element 
of the state andnational economy," he said. "The 
Clinton Administration's Technology 
Reinvestment Project awarded the grant to UW- 
Stout and its partners because we are uniquely 
positioned to provide technology transfer that

With the grant award, UW-Stout will serve as 
organization. The NWMOC will be one of several 
MOCs in the nation, with ties to the National 
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a 
unit of the Commerce Department.

Technology Transfer Institute, is the new 
executive director and the author of die proposal. 
The new organization will be governed by a 
board of manufacturing executives, and 
representatives from the economic development 
and the financial communities. 

According to Schneider, technology transfer 
to industry is an important part Of UW-Stout's 
and the technical colleges' educational mission 
to provide lifelong learning opportunities. The 
process contributes to economic development, 
bringing direct benefit to client companies to 
which they are closely tied. It also brings the 
technical colleges and university valuable 
feedback on teaching programs designed to 
promote the state' s competitiveness in the world

complete technology assistance. It will team 
UW-Stout, the three technical colleges and the 
Upper Midwest MTC as direct partners, with 
othertechnology organizations in thestateplaying 
an important role as indirect partners. These 
include UW System institutions, UW-Extension 
and the Wisconsin Department of Development. 

Each direct partner will bring unique strengths 
and capabilities to the MOC, contributing to a 
highly effective technology transfer system, 
Schneider said. In thepast, UW-Stout has worked 
closely with the Technical College System to 
provide in-plant technology assistance and work 
force development, he noted. The new MOC will 
expand these services to reach business and 
industry in a wider area. It will team the project 
management, operations assessmentand strategy

solving and worker training services of the 
Technical College System. 

"It's just aboutaperfect fit and use of existing 
resources," said Norbert Wurtzel, president of 
Chippewa Valley Technical College. 

The Upper Midwest Manufacturing 
Technology Center, a federally funded program 
in Minnesota, will share technical and 
adrninistrative expertise with the MOC. The 

unique partnership will make a wide variety of 
technology resources available to small- and 
medium-size manufacturers, including technical 
faculty and students, and labs and demonstration 

Brown indicated that much of the funding 
would be used to hire substitutes for faculty and 
staff at participating institutions. For instance, 
although UW-River Falls is not among "the first 
tier partners" in the project, if their expertise in 
food processing was required to aid a chosen 
firm, funding would be available to hire a food 
science professor as a technical expert. 

Only 20 percent of Wisconsin's small- and 
medium-size manufacturers have taken steps to 
implement modern manufacturing technologies 
and practices, according to the grant proposal. 

A small firm, according to a widely accepted 
Commerce Department definition, has 500 or 
fewer employees. More than 95 percent of 
Wisconsin manufacturing firms fall into that 
category. Firms will be chosen by the yet-to-be- 
named board based on their ability to benefit 
from the program. Board members for the center 
will be selected shortly. 

2 ♦ StOUt Outlook 

Training and development 

New graduate degree has industry support 

Beginning in 1 995, UW-Stout will offer a new graduate 
degree in training and development. 

Themasterof science degree was endorsed in March 
by the UW System Board of Regents. Approval of the 
program will enhance the university's ability to serve 
business and industry, according to George DePuy, vice 
chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs. 

The new offering is an evolution of UW-Stout's 
eight-year-old "specialization" in training and human 
resources development, developed primarily by Dick 
Gebhart, a now-retired professor in the department of 
communication, education and training. 

Gebhart and others first proposed bachelor's and 
master's degree programs in training and development 
in 1978. The proposals were turned down at that time, 
and the School of Industry and Technology began offering 
the specialization. 

By the early 1990s, more than 160 students had 
enrolled in the specialization. 

"The students in the specialization and the people in 
vocational schools and in industry began asking when 
we were going to start offering the master's in training," 
Gebhart said. 

During a leave of absence from the university, 
Gebhart met with industry leaders throughout the United 
States and in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore to 
examine the training and development programs of 
successful companies. The information he gained was 
used in developing the new program. 

Through Gebhart's contacts, the UW-Stout program 
has been supported by trainers and managers in 
companies such as James River Corporation, Cray 
Research Inc., Boeing Company, Wausau Insurance 
Companies, 3M, International Paper Corporation and 
Amoco Oil Company. 

DePuy said that research indicates that business and 
industry need employees prepared through training and 
development programs. It has been estimated that 
American industries spend $45 billion annually on 
formal training programs and 30 million individuals 
receive industry training annually. 

Theprogram is designed topreparepeople to develop 
training activities for any organization, but primarily for 
business, industry, and government. Graduates of the 
program will be prepared to manage training and 
development programs; analyze training and 

developmentneeds; design, deliver and evaluate training 
programs; coordinate programs; and develop training 
skills in managers and supervisors. The program design 
is based on research and recommendations from the 
American Society for Training and Development. 

The program is expected to attract people from 
business and industry, post-secondary schools, and 
graduates from UW-Stout's programs. 

DePuy said there is no otherprogram of its kind in the 
state and only an estimated 14 other similarprograms are 
offered in the United States. He said that the new 
offering demonstrates, once again, that UW-Stout is 
responsive to national needs that can be met through its 
special mission. 

As part of the systemwide effort to partner with other 
Wisconsin campuses, UW-Stout will be working with 
UW-River Falls, UW-Stevens Point, UW-Milwaukee, 
UW-Madison and UW-La Crosse on potential 
collaborations related to the program. The collaborations 
will include delivery of selected course work by distance 
education, the articulated transfer of graduate credits 
between institutions, and curriculum and teaching 

The program is 
designed to prepare 

people to develop 
training activities for 

any organization, 

but primarily for 
business, industry, 

and government. 

Keeping labs current 

University benefits from state lab modernization funds 

Thousands of UW.-Stout students have benefited from 
the state's lab modernization fund, now approaching its 
10th year. 

The program provides funds for Wisconsin campuses 
to update equipment in student laboratories. The fund 
has been especially important to UW-Stout, where 
laboratories make up an estimated 80 percent of the 
scheduled instructional space. 

In the first eight years of the program, UW-Stout 
received more than $2.8 million. That pool of money 
expanded to provide the university with more than 
$3.15 million in lab modernization, as departments 
supplemented the funding with monies from their own 
accounts, UW System, student contributions, and 
assistance from industry and vendors. 

Two recent projects highlight the value of the program 
for UW-Stout students. 

The art and design department received funding for 
16 computer stations to be used by students in graphic, 
industrial and interior design concentrations. 

The equipment digitizes video and photographic 
images. Students import the images into the computer 
andmanipulate them during the design process. Students 
contributed a $200 piece of equipment that allows the 
computer-generated product to be turned back into 
video format 

The equipment is vital to the work of many students, 
majoring in art, with a concentration in graphic design. 

"It's hard to describe the importance of this 
equipment," he said. "You bog down trying to explain 
how difficult it is to work with other equipment, when 
what we want to say is that right now we barely have 
what we need. If we had any less, we could not work." 

Companies are now producing interactive packages 
to promote theirproducts, and Linderman saidhe believes 
that the new method of information presentation will 
have educational, commercial and entertainment value. 

"The better jobs are working with these new tools," 
he said. "I'm interested in learning digital video." 

Lab modernization funds also provided computer 
equipment to do three-dimensional rendering and 
modeling. The equipment allows students to draw a 
three-dimensional object, and manipulate the image. In 
the past, each manipulation would have required drawing 
a new image. 

"It's not 

like this

of my students.

of design.

is going to be

careers. The field

Gary Goettl 

"It's not like this is optional for the future of my 
students," said Sue Hunt, a professor in the department. 
"This is not just a part of design. It is the essence of what 
is going to be happening in design." 

Lab modernization funds also provided equipment 
for an advanced physiology lab in the biology department 
The equipment provides students with experience in 
how data would be handled in an industrial or clinical 
setting, according to Fran Garb, a professor in the 

Gary Goettl, a senior in dietetics from Chippewa 
Falls, said the lab allows students to more closely observe 
and understand physiological processes. 

"Computers are very important in hospitals and 
clinical settings," he said. "Being familiar with the 
computer, how to operate it is important. We're going to 
be working with computers in our careers. The field is 
going from having written charts to having patient 
information entered into computer files." 

While students benefit from recent lab modernization 
projects, the continuing unmet needs are a concern for 
many staff members. Ken Parejko, an assistantprofessor 
in the biology department has not been able to offer a 
biotechnology course because the course would require 
about $25,000 in laboratory equipment and facilities 

Even with its funded project, the art and design 
department sees a need for increased lab funds. While 
department members are pleased with the 16 computer 
stations they received, they note that an estimated 500 
students need exposure to the equipment Hunt said. 
Each student would need sufficient time to learn 
the complicated software the computers support. 
Processing students' art projects also ties up individual 
stations for hours at a time, Hunt said. 

UW-Stout has ranked lab modernization projects in 
priority order. Those that are on the top of the list receive 
funding. Even with supplementary funding from the 
university or outside sources, many projects are left 

This fiscal year' s appropriation of $559,600 was the 
largest UW-Stout had ever received, according to Carol 
Dobrunz, an assistant vice chancellor. Changes in the 
funding formula, however, will result in UW-Stout 
receiving a predicted $322,900 in fiscal year 1994-95. 

Department doubles impact 
through donations 

UW-Stout's communications, education and training 
department has more than doubled the impact of a state 
laboratory modernization allocation through donations 
and discounts on equipment. The equipment serves 
laboratories used by the graphic arts management con- 
centration in UW-Stout's industrial technology major. 

Jim Tenorio, a professor in the department, said the 
$200,000 allocation brought more than $400,000 of 
equipment to the department ' s color electronic prepress 
laboratory in the Communication Technologies Build- 
ing. The equipment allows students to design and pre- 
pare items for printing, using desktop publishing meth- 

Tenorio said CET staff visited publishing compa- 
nies and other sites to determine user satisfaction with 
various types of equipment. Staff also worked with 
vendors who visited campus to determine how their 
products could meet the department's needs, and en- 
couraged vendors to provide discounts or donations. 

The new equipment includes a Scitex scanner that 
allows users to enter color photographs into a computer. 
Computers and specialized software allow manipula- 
tion of the photograph, text and other elements to form 
the page to be printed. A 3M Rainbow Proofer allows 
users to print a full-size sample of what appears on the 
screen, to be checked for quality before the print job 

A Scitex Image Setter allows users to transfer the 
computer images onto film, which is then processed and 
used in the final preparation stages before printing. 

Tenorio said the equipment combines many steps of 
traditional preprinting work, streamlining the printing 

Tom Pietrzak, an assistant professor in the depart- 
ment said the department gained the Scitex equipment 
at a 50 percent discount, saving more than $100,000. 
The company also agreed to provide free software 
upgrades for the equipment. 3M Printing and Publish- 
ing Division donated the proofer, a $20,000 value. The 
remaining funds were used to purchase computers and 
software for 15 work stations, computer upgrades and 
related equipment 

Pietrzak said this was a record year for donations to 
the department. The value of industry-provided equip- 
ment and supplies is approaching the $1 million mark. 
Annual donations usually average $200,000, Pietrzak

Learning while they work 

Increased participation reported in UW-Stout's co-op program 

Student participation in UW-Stout's Cooperative 
Education Program increased 19 percent last year, 
according to the program's annual report. During the 
1 992-93 year. 596 students participated in the program, 
an increase of 94 students from the previous year, the 
report states. 

Co-op students earned more than S3 million that 
year, according to a survey summarized in the report 
Survey participants earned an average of $7.60 per hour 
while on their assignments. 

The report also shows 48 new employers providing 
job sites, an increase of 18 percent. 

Cooperative education integrates college studies 
with work experiences in industry, business, government 
and public service, with students receiving wages or 
salaries while on cooperative education job sites, 
The program is centrally coordinated through the 
Placement and Co-op Services Office, in cooperation 
with the university's various schools, majors, minors 
and concentrations. UW-Stout's program is one of the 
largest co-op programs in Wisconsin, Slinden said. 

According to the report, students listed a number of 
benefits from the program, including increased personal 
maturity and confidence, practical experience, valuable 
contacts, improved communication skills, and valuable 
knowledge within their fields of study. 

The report carried comments from formerparticipants 
in the program. 

"I think the co-op working, learning experience is a 
great opportunity forprofessional and self development," 
said Elisa Wong, a hospitality and tourism management 
major. "I would definitely try to get into another co-op 
program, if possible, because the more experience I gain 
from the field, the broader and better view I will get, 
which will help me to make more efficient future 
managerial decisions." 

"This co-op has helped me to learn more about 
packaging, careers, the real world and myself than I 
could ever write in a report. That's why the experience 
is irreplaceable," said Tim Hobbs, an industrial 
technology major with a concentration in packaging. 

"I learned that 


within a team 

is the most 

important aspect 

and that the 

smallest details 

need attention 

if an entire project 

is going to 

come off 


Kris Moriey 

"This co-op gave me 
valuable insight as to what 
life is like in the business 
world," said Mary Alice 
Heap, a general business 
administration major. "I 
have learned how confident 
I am about myself and how 
I feel I am able to go out and 
tackle the real world. 
Talking to upper 
management staff and 
finding out about their 
backgrounds helped me to 
grasp the concept of life 
after college, seeing all the 
obstacles and rewards there 
are in life." 

"I enjoyed the 

atmosphere very much, and 
it was stimulating and encouraging to be working closely 
with others whom I consider intelligent and creative 
thinkers," said Kris Moriey, an applied math major. 
"I learned that communication within a team is the most 
important aspect and that the smallest details need 
attention if an entire project is going to come off 

"I learned that people are the key to doing well at a 
job," said Christine Krizan, an industrial technology 
major with a concentration in packaging. "I could know 
everything there is to know about packaging, but if I 
can't get along with anyone, it wouldn't matter. I 
constantly had to work with and through people to 
complete my objectives for each project."

A growing reputation 

UW-Stout is a truly distinct institution, a university with 
an excellent reputation and an excellent future. We 
support a philosophy of education that will, I believe, be 
emulated by more and more colleges and universities 
because we graduate students well prepared to meet the 
challenges of the 21 st century. 

What is really gratifying is the simple fact that we are 
being recognized nationally, and that recognition is 
producing tangible results. We are extremely pleased to 
announce, in this edition of the Stout Outlook, a $1.3 
million dollar grant from the Clinton Administration's 
Technology Reinvestment Project. As you know, this 
program is vital to re-establishing this country's 
manufacturing base, vital to developing and mamtaining 
the competitive edge in a global 
economy. By establishing the 
Northwest Wisconsin Manu- 
facturing Outreach Center, we 
enter into a partnership with 
the Technical College System, 
the UW-Extension System, the 
State of Wisconsin, and the 
federal government, to address 
the most pressing economic 
issue of the 20th century. 

Our technology transfer 
program, already heralded as 
one of the most unique and 

effective in the country today, will get a tremendous 
boost from this grant, and I extend my congratulations 
again to the fine. faculty and staff responsible for this. 

We are also announcing, in this edition, the approval 
of another new program, a master's degree in training 
and development. This program is designed to meet the 
work force needs of the 21 st century and fits very nicely 
into the mission of UW-Stout. In approving this program , 
the Board of Regents stated that this represented excellent 
planning for a needed area. Join me in congratulating 
more excellent work by our faculty. 

We are involved in a variety of exciting projects here 
that will affectevery school, every program, every student, 
and every member of the UW-Stout community. I am 
extremely proud to represent UW-Stout, to represent 
you, and I hope you share the pride of this fine university.

Outfitting the fit 

Experimental clothing class designs attire for bodybuilders 

Mention clothing for bodybuilders, and people may envision the 
posing suits worn during competitions. The image is that 
bodybuilders don't wear much clothing at all. 

"They do when they go out socially." said Rita Christoffersen, 
a UW-S tout professor in the apparel, textiles and design department. 
"We've designed clothing for people who don't have the same 
body construction as most of us." 

This semester, apparel design/manufacturing majors in 
Christoffersen's experimental clothing class designed two 
collections of sportswear for male bodybuilders, at the request of 
Cris Dahl, the owner of Armor By Knight Corp., based in Lake 
Geneva. Dahl. a serious bodybuilder, formed the company in 
response to the special clothing needs of men like himself. 

"For the bodybuilders, he wanted the clothes to fit, so they 
could move," said Kari Jerich, a student designer from Mendota 
Heights, Minn., who participated in the project. "He wanted the 
garments to give the illusion that the men were big, even if they 
hadn't developed their muscles. He also wanted a dressier, sporty 
look for summer wear." 

Students worked in groups to develop drawings of designs, 
Christoffersen said. 

"We faxed them to Lake Geneva, and the company selected 
shorts, a polo shirt and cover-up," she said. "We created a sample 
garment, and decided to create a second version of each design." 

The class modified a pattern from the company to help with 
sizing the garments. Bodybuilders have special clothing needs. 

Their neck, shoulders, upper arms, chest, buttocks and upper legs 
tend to be fuller than the average person's. Their waist and hip size 
is proportionately small. A bodybuilder's waist size varies 
considerably, depending on the phase of training he is in. 

To accommodate those needs, students designed a polo shirt 
with specially placed seams to follow body curves. The fabric is 
a cotton knit with built-in ease. The shirt sleeves have no banding, 
to allow more freedom of movement. 

The shorts have pleats to provide fullness, and a specially 
designed waistband that accommodates changing waist size. 

"The shorts were designed for a muscular frame," Dahl said. 
"They're not designed for someone who is overweight. You don't 
have to have the size and proportions of a bodybuilder, but these 
are definitely for a more muscular individual." 

Gathers in the shoulders of the cover-up allow freedom of 

"The cover-ups are extremely unusual, and they're something 
that would catch on," Dahl said. "It's a fashion statement." 

Dahl said his company will be using the designs, and he hopes 
to develop an ongoing relationship with the apparel, textiles and 
design department at UW-StouL 

Jerich said she will include the project in her resume. 

"I thought the assignment was good for the class," she said. "So 
much of what we do in classes is independent work. This taught us 
how to work together as a team. We had a time limit and it pushed 
us. That's realistic because in industry you have deadlines." 

Cris Dahl, owner of Armor by Knight, models a set of garments designed 
by an experimental clothing class taught by Rita Christoffersen, standing 
to the right of Dahl. With them are three of the student designers (left to 
right): Dee Peeples, St. Paul, Minn.; Sonya Konkel, Eau Claire; and Wendy 
Long, Wisconsin Rapids. Students worked in groups to modify patterns and 
design and construct two sets of garments for summer wear.

Giroux studies impact of education system 
on Lake Superior Chippewa band 

A faculty member is working with the Lac du Flambeau Band of the Lake 
Superior Chippewa to determine the impact of the education system on 
the reservation's high school students and their attrition rates. 

Sharon Giroux, an associate professor in the hospitality and tourism 
department, is conducting the qualitative study for her doctorate disser- 
tation through the University of Minnesota. She has interviewed mem- 
bers of the band and is compiling the information. Giroux said she plans 
to provide the band with results and recommendations. 

Giroux said approximately 53 percent of the students from the Lac du 
Flambeau Reservation do not complete high school. The attrition rate is 
similar to the drop out rate at other public high schools serving a 
proportionally small number of Native American students. 

The study is part of Giroux's ongoing work with minority issues. 
Giroux has assisted the Lac du Flambeau Band with plans for develop- 
ment of a tourist attraction. Shewasalsoa leader in establishing a faculty 
and study exchange program with Virginia State University, a predomi- 
nantly black university. 

Giroux and Linda Torres, Minority/Disadvantaged coordinator, were 
recently honored at a closed Oneida tribal ceremony in Green Bay for 
their assistance in the career development of specific members of the 

U.S. Labor Secretary Reich visits campus 

A capacity crowd gathered in the Great Hall at UW-Stout April 5 to 
hear U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich lead a "Workplace of the Future" 
town hall meeting.

force forjobs that will become available in the 2 1st century and explained ^ _^ 

the Clinton Administration's proposed Re-employment Act. 

Figures from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate that 18 percent of 
Americans with full-time jobs do not earn enough to support a family of 
four above the poverty level. That figure is up from 1 2 percent in 1 979, 
Reich said. People with college degrees, however, have seen a slight 
upward trend in earnings. Education and skills are important in today's 
economy, he said. 

"If you have skills, technology is your friend," he said. "If you don't 
have skills, technology may be replacing you or at least driving your 
wage down." 

The re-employment system is designed to help Americans move 
more easily from one job to another. The goal is to provide "one-stop- 
shopping" for people to leam about jobs and where to get training for 

Wisconsin is already providing that type of service, Reich said. The 
state has 23 such one-stop centers, including a job center in Menomonie

UW-Stout's placement rate still strong 

UW-Stout's long-term track record of high placement for its graduates is 
continuing, according to this year's annual placement report. The report 
shows 96.7 percent of UW-Stout graduates were employed or continuing 
their education, up from 95.4 percent last year. 

Of those graduates reporting employment, 90. 1 percent were working 
"in or related to their major" the report stated. Only 4- percent of the 
graduating class could not be reached by survey or telephone. Graduates 
in the teaching majors and in 24 of the university's programs or concen- 
trations had 100 percent placement. 

LaMont Meinen, director of Placement and Co-op Services, said the 
high figures continue to attest to the popularity of UW-Stout ' s majors with 
employers. The "applications oriented" approach to teaching students and 

practical experiences, such as co-op education, also are highly prized, he 

"In 1993, businesses continued to cut back on their on-campus 
recruiting and increased their referral activity," Meinen said. "Always 
concerned with meeting the needs of students and employers, Placement 
and Co-op Services instituted a computer registration process during the 
fall of 1993," he stated. 

Meinen said with the new process, the Placement and Co-op Services 
Office is able to dramatically speed up the process by which students are 
referred to employers. 

The report covers December 1 992 graduates and spring and summer 
1993 graduates. 

Home Ec faculty test turkey recipes 

Two departments in the School of Home Economics recently developed 
and tested recipes for new cuts of turkey to help Jerome Foods Inc. expand 
its market. 

The recipes included sauteed turkey fillet mignon with roasted garlic 
and onion, broiled oriental marinated turkey tenderloin fillet mignon, and 
broiled turkey tenderloin medallions with a tarragon-mushroom cream 

The recipes will be presented to commercial food service establish- 
ments this spring when Jerome Foods Inc. begins promoting the new cuts 
of turkey. 

Faculty in the departments of food and nutrition, and hospitality and 
tourism developed preparation methods and recipes for 32 dishes, then 
conducted taste tests for the company. 

In the filial phase of the project, university researchers chose eight 
recipes, and asked consumers to compare the recipes when prepared with 
beef, veal, pork and turkey. 

"On the average, the testers perceived the turkey as being better than 
the beef, veal or pork in the selected recipes," said Tim Buergermeister, 
chair of the department of hospitality and tourism. Testers considered the 
appearance, flavor, moistness, tenderness and overall appeal of the dishes 
in making their ratings. 

While turkey has been a traditional favorite at Thanksgiving and other 
holidays, it has not appeared on restaurant and food service menus as 
frequently as chicken. 

"It was not perceived as something you would buy when you went out 
for dinner," Buergermeister said. "The difference now is that they've 
taken the turkey and come up with new cuts that are truly unique." 

Faculty participating in the project were Buergermeister, PeterD'Souza 
and Philip McGuirk, from the hospitality and tourism department; and 
Anita Pershern, Janice Timmer and Anita Wilson, from the food and 
nutrition department. 

Peter D'Souza, left, an assistant professor in the department of hospitality 
and tourism, and Bruce Cunningham, the Southeastern regional business 
manager for Jerome Foods Inc., prepare dishes using newly developed 
cuts of turkey. Two departments at the university created and tested 
recipes for the new cuts of turkey. 

Child and Family Study Center 
receives national accreditation 

UW-Stout' s Child and Family Study Center has received accreditation by 
the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. The Child and 
Family Study Center serves 80 children from ages six weeks to seven 
years, according to its director. Carla Ahmann. "Accreditation enables us 
to show our commitment to providing a high quality and professional 
early childhood program," she said. 

To become accredited, UW-Stout's Child and Family Study Center 
had to meet a variety of strict criteria related to providing a developmen- 
tally appropriate program for preschool-aged children. These criteria 
range from having a well-qualified and trained staff to meeting stringent 
health and safety standards. In addition, the program must provide 
opportunities for parental involvement. 

Construction program accredited 

UW-Stout's bachelor of science degree in construction was recently 
accredited by the American Council for Construction Education. 

This full accreditation is for five years, the maximum time limit for an 
initial accreditation. There are now 41 schools with this endorsement. 

The American Council for Construction Education is a private, non- 
profit corporation. Its primary goal is promotion and continued improve- 
ment of post-secondary construction education through accreditation of 
construction education programs in colleges and universities that request 
its evaluation, and meet its standards and criteria. 

ACCE serves the interests of potential students by helping them 
identify institutions and programs that offer quality education in the 
construction education field, and serves industry by enabling employers 
to identify persons who have the education and training for making lasting 
contributions to the industry and their profession.

Foundation Report 

Making a gift to the 
Stout Foundation 

How can you make current gifts to the Foundation? How will they affect your taxes and estate 
planning? Careful consideration of current gifts will ensure the greatest philanthropic benefits 
for you and UW-Stout. 

Cash gifts 

Cash, in the form of personal checks, is the most popular type of charitable gift. Cash 
contributions are tax-deductible and result in federal and state tax savings. 

The actual cost of your gift will be reduced by the tax benefit. The higher your income tax 
bracket, the lower the net cost of your contribution. 

Personal checks should be made payable to the Stout University Foundation, Inc. 

Corporate matching gifts 

Many corporations match personal donations with an equal or greater corporate contribution. 
Rules about the type of gifts that companies will match (cash, stock, property) vary. 

Please inquire at your company's personnel department to see if your gift qualifies for a 
corporate match. There usually is a minimum and a maximum level of giving which will be 

Gifts of securities 

A transfer of securities to the Stout University Foundation Inc., allows you to make a gift and 
receive a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities. You pay no capital 
gains tax on your gift. The Foundation, if it chooses to sell the securities, does not pay a tax either. 

Are all securities good material for gifts? 

No, securities that have appreciated in value are the most advantageous for making a gift. 
You should sell depreciated securities and give the proceeds to the Foundation. In this 
way, you can deduct the loss on your income tax. 

How can I donate securities? 

One of the easiest ways to transfer stock is when your securities are held by a bank or 
broker. They can then be transferred to the Foundation. Please ask your representative to 
contact the director of the Foundation at 715/232-1256. In turn, the office will tell your 
representative how to handle the transaction. 

Gifts of stock certificates 

If you wish to send in a stock certificate, send in the certificate — without any endorsement or 
assignment — to the Stout University Foundation Inc., P.O. Box 790, Menomonie, WI 54751- 
0790. Enclose a letter stating the purpose of your gift. 

Under separate cover, mail a stock power endorsed, carrying your signature(s) exactly as 
your name(s) appears on the face of the certificate. Your signature(s) need not be guaranteed. 
A copy of your letter stating the gift's purpose should be enclosed. 

Note: Under this method of transfer, the date of the gift is the later of the two postmarks. The 
Stout University Foundation' s name, as transferee, should not be fdled in on either the 
assignment form or the separate stock power. 

GE grant assists women, minorities 

3SVE gives $50,000 to campaign, 

sets challenge grant 

UW-Stout has been awarded a grant of $50,000 
for scholarships and faculty development, by 
3M, for its Fryklund Hall campaign, according to 
Patricia Reisinger, director of Foundation and 
Alumni Services. 

Fryklund Hall, thecenter of the manufacturing 
laboratories at UW-Stout, is currently being 
remodeled and updated to accommodate the 
latest manufacturing technologies. It will house 
the Computer Integrated Manufacturing Center, 
akey laboratory for students entering UW-Stout's 
new manufacturing engineering major. 

The grant could pay an additional $75,000 
over a three-year period, with the challenge grant 
program where 3M will match its employees' 
contributions to UW-Stout's campaign for 
Fryklund Hall. 

"We are pleased to be able to offer this 
challenge to you, and wish you the best in meeting 


the goals set forth," said 
Cynthia Kleven, super- 
visor of corporate con- 
tributions for 3M. 

Paul Husby '69, 3M 
engineer and Tom 

Kornegor '68, director of package engineering, 
are the co-chairs of the internal 3M campaign. 
They have scheduled orientation meetings to 
introduce 3M employees to the Fryklund 
Campaign. Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen, 
and Bruce Siebold, dean of the School of Industry 
and Technology, will be on hand to explain the 
campaign and answer any questions. 

Following the orientations, Husby and 
Korneger will be in contact with all 3M alumni 
and friends to remind them of 3M Foundation's 
generous matching gift contribution to this 

UW-Stout has received a $25,000 grantfrom the 
GE Foundation for scholarships to assist women 
and minorities in obtaining a degree in 
manufacturing engineering, Chancellor Charles 
W. Sorensen announced. 

Sorensen received notice of the award from 
Clifford Smith, president of the Fairfield, Conn, 
based foundation. 

Sorensen said the grant was of significant 
importance to UW-Stout for several reasons. 
"First, it will give us an opportunity to attract top- 
notch students for this challenging new program," 
he said. "Pn addition, this will provide an 
opportunity to increase participation by women 
and minorities in the growing and vital field of 

manufacturing engineering. It also recognizes 
that this is another example of how UW-Stout is 
on the cutting edge for innovative development 
that attracts support from the private sector." 

UW-Stout's manufacturing engineering 
program is one of only a dozen in the country and 
the only one in the UW System. The program is 
designed to meet the need for engineers who can 
respond aggressively to the changing needs of 
the marketplace, apply research and theory to 
products and processes, and design with an 
awareness of the realities of manufacturing. 

The university will begin its manufacturing 
engineering undergraduate program this fall.

Project studies, applies electronic imaging 

UW-Stout students and instructors from several 
disciplines are using the latest graphic arts 
technology to develop printed materials for the 
Vintage Room, an on-campus dining service. 

In addition to earning academic credit, 
students are learning how to do "electronic 
imaging." The process involves using a camera 
that stores images on a computer disk rather than 
film. Theelectronic image can be entered directly 
into a computer, providing the graphic designer 
with immediate access to the image. 

Through the use of the specialized equipment, 
thedesigned piece canprogress from thecomputer 
screen to the printing press, eliminating many of 
the steps of conventional design and printing. 

Each design team is made up of four to five 
students majoring in industrial technology, art or 
food systems and technology. Instructors from 
five departments and two instructional support 
staff members are donating their time to direct 
the project. Equipment, supplies and instructor 
training costs are covered by grants from Stout 
University Foundation Inc., and UW System. 

The project involves revising promotional 
materials for the Vintage Room to produce a 
unified look for the restaurant. 

Students also worked with the staff of Cy 
DeCosse Inc., a design firm with expertise in 
food photography and food publications. The 
company has used electronic imaging technology 
for national and international clients, and shared 
its equipment and expertise with team members 
on campus and at their Minneapolis-based facility. 

Leading the project are Beverly Spinti and 
Janice Timmer, food and nutrition department;

Scholarships established 

Dorothy Z. Bergman Endowed Scholarship 

Dorothy Z. Bergman '39, through a bequest, has established an endowed scholarship 
in the School of Home Economics for food and nutrition majors. The first 
scholarship will be awarded this fall, in the amount of $2,000. 

Bergman was employed for many years by National Presto Industries, Eau 
Claire, Wis., where she was in charge of the test kitchens. She said she was in love 
with "food" and enjoyed testing and publishing recipes and Presto food equipment 
brochures. She retired from Presto in the 1970s. 

Erik Jon Odness Endowed Scholarship 

The Phi Omega Beta fraternity is raising funds to endow a scholarship in memory 
of Erik Jon Odness. Odness was the son of Jerry '71 and Cheri Hagen 
Odness '69, Green Bay, formerly of Menomonie. 

Odness was a senior majoring in industrial technology when he was killed 
while home on summer vacation in 1989. In his memory, a scholarship will be 
established and awarded annually to a deserving senior who is majoring in industrial 

The scholarship will be awarded for the first time this fall. The fraternity, under odness 
the leadership of President Troy Grekoff, will contribute $250 toward the first scholarship, and the 
family will match the contribution for a total of $500. Additional funds will be generated through 
fraternity work activities and through a letter campaign to friends and family asking them to join 
in this effort. 

Michael Reetz Packaging Scholarship 

Donna and Gary Reetz, along with Michael Reetz's friends at 3M, have established 
an endowed scholarship in his memory. Reetz died of injuries suffered in an auto 
accident this past February. The scholarship will be restricted to a junior or senior 
student majoring in packaging at UW-Stout. The scholarship must reach $5,000 
before it is income-producing. The first scholarship will be awarded from the 
account at that time. A portion of the income is awarded in the form of a scholarship, 
and a portion of the income remains in the account to appreciate. A special thanks 
to Todd Van Den Avond '88 and Ryan Nielson '91 for spearheading the 3M 

Foundation land master plan receives award 

Hammel Green and Abrahamson Inc. (HGA) 
recently received a merit award from the Minne- 
sota chapter of the American Society of Land- 
scape Architects (MASLA) for its Stout Univer- 
sity Foundation Land Master Plan. 

HGA' s master plan received its merit award 
in the category of public planning. Additional 
categories includeprivatelandscapedesign, com- 
mercial landscape design or public landscape 
design, private planning, research and communi- 
cation. Participating in the 25th annual competi- 
tion, jurors selected the master plan because it 
represented a new kind of development model, 
proving that growth can be compatible with a 
quality rural landscape and a historic university 

The award-winning master plan, illustrates 
development options for 275 acres of land owned 
by the Stout University Foundation on the east 
side of Menomonie, Wis. With islands of hard- 
woods, south-sloping topography and dramatic 
views to Lake Menomin, this land offers a rare 
opportunity for sensitive residential and com- 
mercial development Drawing inspiration from 
historic landscape architects such as Horace 
Cleveland and Warren Manning, HGA's design 
solution reiterates that parks and public areas are 
a vital part of responsible land use. The highest 
points on the site are reservedfor bluff parkland, 
where native grasses and hardwoods will be 

The solution' s street lay out is a logical exten- 
sion of the older fabric of Menomonie and seeks 
to strengthen the downtown, rather than leave the 
area prey to strip mall development. Varied lot 
sizes provide commercial and housing options 
for a range of incomes. In addition, the master 
plan is sensitive to changes in topography and 

hydrology systems. 

Tom Oslund, HGA principal and design team 
leader, said, "It was a delight working with the 
Stout University Foundation Board and its Real 
Estate Committee. These people are true vision- 
aries in their concerns for responsible steward- 
ship of the land. We hope this innovative master 
plan will serve as a convincing alternative for 
future development." 

The master plan design team also includes 
Catherine Murray, Frank Martin, Tadd Kreun 
and Eric Hansen.

Moua aids Hmong elderly 

For the past year, Her Moua, master's program 
in guidance and counseling, has been providing 
language and cultural translation, and intervention 
services for elderly Hmong in Dunn, Eau Claire, 
La Crosse and Rusk counties. 

Moua's position with the Western Wisconsin 
Area Agency on Aging in Eau Claire is one of 
only five in the country funded by a Minority 
Management Training Program grant from the 
National Association of Area Agencies on Aging. 
The funding ends in May. 

"We're really concerned," saidDianneRhein, 
regional planner with WWAAA. "It's not like 
the needs are going to go away in May. Hmong 
Mutual Assistance Associations have tried to do 
what they can. But Her has the advantage of 
being a trained counselor. He brings something 
very special to his work with older people." 

Moua understands the isolation, cultural 
confusion and resulting depression that elderly 
Hmong often feel. He and his wife came to 
Spring Valley 14 years ago. He worked in 
assembly plants in Menomonie and St. Paul 
before going to Mount Scenario College, where 
he received an undergraduate degree in criminal 
justice. He then moved to Menomonie to attend 

"I came to Stout because I like the major," he 
said. "I love to have communication with people, 
and I love to talk to people, to help people. That' s 
why I think counseling and guidance is my best 
major, and that's why I focused on it" ' 

The program does riot specifically address 
the needs of refugees, but Moua said he believes 
it prepared him well for this work. 

"The first thing you have to find out, is what 
happened to your client," he said. "You know 
there's lots going on in this country for the 
elderly people. So anything that is said, you have 
to find out in the beginning why. Then you have 
an idea of the feeling, and if people aredepressed, 
you help them solve the problem." 

In addition to issues that affect all elderly, 
Hmong elderly are plagued by a language and 
cultural barrier, isolation, and different health 
care practices, Moua said. 

Lack of transportation keeps many elderly 
Hmong in their homes. This region does not have 
enough teachers and tutors to be able to teach 
English to elderly Hmong in their homes. 

"How can they learn? That's very tough. 
That's very hard," Moua said. "They are really 

willing to do it, but there is no one to help them, 
to teach the language." 

Without transportation and language skills, 
elderly Hmong feel isolated, unable to learn 
more about the new culture that surrounds them, 
and unable to keep the contact necessary to 
sustain their native culture. 

Many also find

When one of his clients was hospitalized, 
Moua prohibited the physician from operating 
until the family had talked to the clan's leader to 
gain permission for the operation. Only when the 
leader approved the operation did Moua allow 
the physician to proceed. 

"If he didn't get the permission from the 
clan's leader, if the patient dies, there is a 
problem," Moua said. "Nothing I can do. It's our

Wisconsin currently has the country's third 
largest Hmong population. While the numbers 
may not be large in any given community, Moua 
said there is a substantial population of Hmong in 
western Wisconsin. 

While there are agencies thatprovide services 
for Hmong families, none have a Hmong staff 
person who speaks the language and understands 
culturally sensitive issues. Moua said he does not 
know where the Hmong elderly will go for 
services when his position ends.

Adams earns teaching honor 

A 1972 graduate of the industxial/technology 
education program received the "Teacher of the 
Year" award recently at Utah Valley State 

and photography classes at UVSC for 21 years. 

Adams earned a bachelor' s degree in industrial 
education from Brigham Young University. After 
completing his master's at Stout, he started 
UVSC's graphics program. The program has 
grown from 13 to approximately 100 students. 

Adams said he has wanted to be a teacher for 
as long as he can remember, and not just any 
teacher, but a "hands-on" instructor, which is 
where some of his hobbies lie. 

Adams said he aims to teach in a manner he 
describes as an "informal basis" in an attempt to 
reach every student, especially -those who are 
struggling in school. 

He said he doesn't believe in "hidden 
agendas," but rather wants his students to 
understand assignments and know exactly what 
is expected of them. 

Part of his philosophy as a teacher is to let 
students know that he is their friend. "My 

requirement is to be a good, quality teacher," 
Adams said. 

The hardest part of his teaching experience 
has been watching students face tough challenges 
and life difficulties, Adams said. Another 
negative element in teaching is seeing the 
emotional struggles some of his students have 
gone through, he said. 

Adams has been involved in the printing 
industry and started getting serious about 
photography during his master's program in 
1971. In addition to photography, he enjoys 
working with scouting, gardening andyard work, 
and service as a bishop in the Church of Latter 
Day Saints. He is married and the father of eight 

The "Teacher of the Year" award, which has 
been given for the past 10-12 years, is given 
based on student and peer evaluation. Selection 
factors include service to the college and 
community, involvement and professional 
development and staying current in vocational 
and national issues.

Throughout his illustrious career, Noel Myers 
has remembered UW-Stout and the preparation 
he received from the campus. 

Jobs were scarce in 1935. Myers, a recent 
graduate of Ball State, was unable to find a 
teaching position. He worked for General Motors 
as a machinist for two years before he was able to 
secure a teaching position in industrial and fine 
arts. He held that job for seven years. 

Hearing about UW-Stout's programs for 
advancement in industrial arts and vocational 
education, Myers enrolled in summer 1942 and 
continued for the next two summers. 

"Of great help to me, was the campground 
facilities provided students," Myers said. "I used 
these facilities for my family for three years." 

Following graduation, Myers became a 
vocational director and a regional director for 
war production training. In 1951, he joined the 
State Department as a chief education adviser to 
developing countries, and was selected by the 
State Department as one of six people to receive 

ayearof graduate study. 
Myers used the award 
to earn a doctor of 
education degree from 
Indiana University. 

Myers retired 
from Foreign Services 
in 1970. Since then he 
has received numerous 
awards, including the 
Outstanding Service 
Award from the 
American Vocational 
Association; Distinguished Alumni Award from 
Ball State University; and the Sagamore of the 
Wabash, for humanity in living, loyalty in 
friendship, wisdom in council and inspiring 
leadership, from the governor of Indiana. 

"I shall always be grateful to UW-Stout for 
the preparation and the encouragement and the 
association experienced on that campus," Myers

Duplicate Mailings 

Stout Outlook is mailed to more than 35,000 
alumni, parents and friends. Because the 
Outlook mailing is compiled from several 
lists, duplications can occur where several 
copies are mailed to the same person or to the 
same address. 

To help cut production and mailing costs, 
the Outlook staff requests that readers return 
the mailing label from duplicate copies to:
